Lyrics OH, CHEROKEE CHIEF
AS HE DANCES ALONG,
HE SINGS
AN INDIAN BOOGIE
TO A WHITE MAN'S
SONG,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
OH OH
NA-WICH-EE-NA-EH.

WELL, HE DANCES
OVER HERE
AND HE DANCES
OVER THERE,
AND HE'S DANCIN'
WITH A SQUAW
CALLED STANDIN' BEAR,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
OH OH
NA-WICH-EE-NA-EH.

WELL,
HE DANCES
IN A TROT
AND HE DANCES
IN A WALK,
BUT HE KEEPS ON
SHAKIN'
HIS OLD TOMMYHAWK,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
OH OH
NA-WICH-EE-NA-EH.

NOW, HE SINGS A LITTLE SOFT
AND HE SINGS
A LITTLE LOUD,
AND HIS TOM-TOM
BEATS,
OH,
CHIEF BLUE CLOUD,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
OH OH
NA-WICH-EE-NA-EH.

HE'S A CHEROKEE CHIEF
AS YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW,
WHEN HE SINGS
HIS BOOGIE,
SAYIN',
NA-WAN-YO,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
SAYIN',
EH-OH-ALEENA,
OH OH
NA-WICH-EE-NA-EH.
